Kathy B. dropped us a note about her iGive Cause. Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding counties. This non-profit dog rescue consists of a group of men and women who rescue abused, neglected, unwanted and abandoned animals. These people provide temporary foster homes to these animals until they are adopted. Paws Crossed provides these animals with food and medical needs including spay and neutering.
The foster homes play an essential part, for they do not have kennels for the dogs they rescue. Paws Crossed depends on the fosters, donations of food, supplies and money to be able to continue helping these dogs find their forever homes. All potential fosters and adopters are screened in order to assure the proper fitting home for each dog.
Check out Paws Crossed success stories for some of the cutest furry-friends with their new, loving families.

A love letter to horses from iGive member: Linda J.
I love horses and have always wanted to have a horse since I was a little girl. I met the volunteers from the Colorado Horse Rescue at the National Western Stock Show many years ago and donated to the cute miniature horse they had at the show. That was all it took; my husband and I attended their annual fund raising events and love to see the horses and hear their success stories.

When I learned about the iGive website that offered an easy way to donate and help the horses it was a perfect match for me. I love shopping online and buying from sites that support my favorite cause. I was sad to see a few of the stores I liked no longer offer the donations and hope to see more websites encourage shoppers to support their favorite cause.
Thank you iGive,
We, too, were inspired by the story of these majestic animals & the humans who so lovingly care for them.
Every member has a cause they love, and every cause has a story. Share yours with us today as we spend this year celebrating 20 Years of Giving.
As iGive.com celebrates 20 years in business, we are highlighting some of our most successful causes & members. We asked you to share your stories, and here’s one of our most inspiring!
iGive.com has provided the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) with an invaluable source of funding for community services, such as patient conferences and a nationwide branch system. Our members love iGive because the money spent in favorite on-line retailers goes right back into the Association, helping those who need it most.
CMTA Patient & Family conferences change lives by bringing researchers, clinicians and people with this degenerative nerve disease together, to learn, to hope, to relieve the isolation of living with a rare disease. Our dynamic branch leaders work hard to bring CMT specialists to the public and provide much-needed support to all our members.
The CMTA is sincerely grateful to work with iGive, as the extra revenue generated through this partnership has helped thousands of people across the nation. To the folks at iGive.com-we look forward to 20 more years of great non-profit work!
Since joining iGive.com in 2014, Margaret M. continues to support The Foundation for Homeless Cats with her online shopping. In one month, she earned $250+ – Woo Hoo! That’s some true feline affection.
This Phoenix based group of volunteers who work to manage the feral cat population through TNR-TRAP, SPAY/NEUTER, RETURN.
“Our goal- end the killing of these cats in Maricopa County! Euthanasia is NOT population control!”
For her efforts, iGive store Beachbody has provided a great prize for Margaret:
Shanta Wanagi (Sacred Heart Angel) came to the WMS on April 29, 2002. She was 14 days old.
Wolf Mountain Sanctuary is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to the preservation, protection and proper management of wolves in the wild and in captivity. Our purpose and ultimate goal is to save these great noble animals from extinction. Wolf Mountain is home to 18 wolves that were rescued and will live their lives out at the Sanctuary. We receive no funding and rely completely on donations and adoptions. Visitors can interact with our wolves (very few sanctuaries allow this). Our belief is that since our wolves will live with us for the rest of their lives they will receive love and attention from the many humans that cross their paths.
Balto came to WMS from East Texas in late 2013.
iGive member Ellen dropped us this little love note about the Cause:
“Tonya Littlewolf is the director of the Wolf Mountain Sanctuary. This person loves and cares for the wolves, so much she brings them home with her at times… so they won’t be alone. Tonya is a great humanitarian… She makes sure they are fed, healthy and is always working on a better environment for them. I love her for what she does in caring and helping the wolves. When they are sick, she tries to get a vet and ask the people to help donate to pay for their treatment…..Tonya is the best…..”
February is the month to celebrate love – and we’re pretty sure that North Texas Rabbit Sanctuary LOVES Joanie D. Since joining iGive in 2005, Joanie’s online shopping has benefited NTRS to the tune of just over $1,000! That’s a lot of treats for a lot of floppy-eared friends!
All the rabbits that come into NTRS’s care, are given a chance to live and look forward to being adopted into warm, loving homes with caring people.
HDSA has been an active partner with iGive since 1999. They are the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today and hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
HDSA’s network of chapters, affiliates, HDSA Centers of Excellence, social workers and support groups provides a seamless connection for help, education and outreach to HD families and health care professionals across the United States.
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure.
In 1993, researchers identified the gene that causes HD. Since then, research has moved quickly towards developing treatments and, ultimately, a cure. HDSA supports the goals of clinical and basic research at leading research facilities globally.
By partnering with iGive, HDSA has earned over $11,000 toward their goals of improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. You can see their recent progress here:
Kittyland Cat and Kitten Rescue came into being when the shelter that had operated on the property for 30 years had to move, due to zoning changes. The dogs moved out to another shelter but the cats had no where to go.
“It was time to start our own Sanctuary,” Ann Woods, Executive Director of Kittyland told us. “We were deeded the land and are in the process of refurbishing some very old buildings to make a comfortable home for Cats and Kittens in danger. We are the only Cat and Kitten rescue in our valley that has a facility to accommodate just Cats and Kittens. We offer Sanctuary to older felines and to cats who need medical help, we are a no kill shelter. We find homes for healthy cats and kittens,we rely totally on donations which is why iGive is so important to us and made so easy for supporters to participate.”
Thanks to all who support this worthy cause, they’ve earned over $450 through their iGive partnership.
